Loading Your Rifle with Ammo and Not Ego

Russell Miller is a triple-distinguished competition shooter as well as a former special operations officer. He’s spent an enormous amount of time coaching snipers and precision shooters, and today he’s our guest on the show.

In this episode, we cover a lot of ground between the world of competition shooting and tactical precision marksmanship. Russ shared some very pointed criticism of US Army marksmanship training.

Some of the main topics I think you’ll enjoy focus on getting started in rifle competition, and establishing a balance between behaviors appropriate for competition versus defensive situations. Additionally, we spend a lot of time talking about the importance of consistent practice to build a foundation of skills that make good marksmanship instinctive.



I’m the founder of The Everyday Marksman.

I’ve always been an outdoors fanatic and avid shooting enthusiast. As a former military officer and master instructor, I want to bring a different perspective to the firearms and outdoors communities. It’s not just about high-speed shooting and tactics, but the sum of your ability.

I created The Everyday Marksman to teach tactical skills to everyday people seeking a more adventurous life.
